Possible Gas Leak @ Colchester North PS

- students being moved to Essex District High School-

All students and staff from Colchester North Public School are being transported to Essex District High School because of a possible natural gas leak.

A strange odour was detected after lunch and as a precaution, the school was evacuated while Union Gas and the Essex Fire Department searched for a source.

Since a full investigation requires more than an hour, students have been moved to the high school for the remainder of the day. Dismissal for Colchester North students will take place from the high school.

Urgent inquiries should be made to 519-255-3200.

For further information contact Public Relations Officer Scott Scantlebury at 519-255-3200 ext. 10224 or 519-995-5797.
